I have been working at The Children's Place part-time (less than an year)

Pros

flexible scheduling, great staff, nice customers, good for people seeking 0-15 hrs

Cons

On calls make you not able to plan your day, shoplifters, manager plays favorites sometimes, not enough hours or pay

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't have your stores hire more people seasonally if they are only going to get 5 hours a week. POINTLESS!

    I worked at The Children's Place full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The brand representatives have close family-like relationship within each store. We are cross trained in every aspect of the retail business from direct customer sevice, cash handling, merchandising in addition to shipping and receiving. If retail is your career of choice the company works hard to develop you for upper management postions.

    Cons

    The environment is extremely task driven.As a result we tend to have a high tunrover rate. If you are not a multi-tasker this is not the ideal enviornment. Their seems to be a lack in communication between the workload our home office requires in a time frame and what we can actually product in the store in that designated time frame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish HQ would ask brand reps for suggestions on how to improve existing merchandsie or what things would encourage company retention.

    Pros

    good people
    fun environment
    managers work with you on your availability
    DISCOUNT!

    Cons

    Hours vary too often
    The on calls suck!
    Unrealistic expectations
    Lots of pressure to get the PLACE card
    When they need you they need you and thats it no if ands buts about it
    too much of a double standard....you cant be late but a manager can

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I suggest you start rewarding your employees better wages. Without them the company wouldn't be making any money. Also your deadlines are unrealistic and the window changes and floor sets are ridiculous. Your products aren't selling because of a display they aren't selling because they are not up with the current fashion trends for children.
